The French national carrier Air France, part of the Air France-KLM Group, will in October this year commence flights to Zanzibar, as the airline seeks to further strengthen its presence in East Africa.
Air France will operate two flights a week on Tuesday and Saturday between Paris Charles de Gaulle and Zanzibar starting 18th October, with a loop to Nairobi, pending government approval.
The rising number of tourists’ visiting Zanzibar, not just from Europe but also the rest of the world, signifies the growing interest in the unique experiences the region has to offer.
Air France comes in to offer a superior and memorable flying experience both for first time and regular flyers to East Africa from our hub in Paris. Ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Air France has endeavored to maintain its network as much as possible, including in Africa.
This has enabled customers to make necessary journeys and facilitated the transportation of cargo, such as medical supplies. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, a sister company to Air France has been flying to Tanzania since 1969 and recently celebrated 52 years of operations. KLM opened a direct route from Amsterdam to Zanzibar in December 2020. The addition of Air France shines a ray of hope for Africa even as we fight through the pandemic.
